In the adventure game genre, GoodbyeWorld Games has provided something completely remarkable.
Have you ever dreamed of being able to control the game simply by blinking your eyes?
Yeah, I’m referring to the real eyeballs.
“How the hell does that work?” you’re probably wondering.
The Ferryman, a feline boat captain who shepherds departed souls to the afterlife, is portrayed as a “personal tale of self-discovery” as players embark on a journey led by him.
The first trailer depicts various phases of a person’s life, including playing games with loved ones, traveling to different nations, and, ultimately, death.
Players must physically blink to relive these memories, and your webcam detects these gestures and registers them as inputs.
Blinking will accelerate time by a few days or years. Blinking can also initiate such experiences, as shown in the trailer when the Ferryman instructs players to blink over his hand or when viewing a picture album. The concept is that life is flickering before your eyes, and I can’t imagine a more immersive and organic way of conveying the message.
